Stealth Settings...

I really wanted to post this last night, but there was just no way around my fh seeing the pictures, so I am being a very bad girl and posting from work! Stealthy... I have the dress... I went on Sunday with my fmil, moh, and one bm to try it on for the first time and it is amazing on me!!! I love it!! I cannot express enough how happy I am. I ordered a size smaller than what was recommended, and I am glad I did because even the size 6 is a little big (in the bust area). I am by no means a small busted woman, but I do have very narrow shoulders, so I am sure that is the problem. The veil I bought won't work, so I am going to have to rethink that one -- there is no way I'm paying $200 for the veil I tried on at the bridal shop. My moh took a gazzillion pictures, and I look very strange in most of them because she never warned me when she was going to take the pictures! So, I will do my best to give a small blurb for each picture posted.




1. Front of dresss (no shoes on) 2. Back of dress 3. "Haute Couture" pose -- this is me making fun of the stupid hunched bridal poses in all of the wedding magazines. 4. Close up of beading detail - if you look closely you can see how the top doesn't fit.

Wow it looks amazing! I am so happy for you that it fits so well and your worried were unfounded. I am starting to wonder whether I should have ordered a smaller size... the whole thing is a big con to make you pay for alterations, eh?

Aw. thanks for sharing the photos :)

I like your dress. I like the detailing in the front. I tried on some dress similar to this when I was looking. The detailing makes your waist look so small.

It's gorgeous! I'm not usually a big fan of strapless dresses but yours is stunning! I really like how simple and elegant it is but that the beading and folded fabric stop it from being plain. Just gorgeous! And you look fab in it!
